** Welcome to the McMaster Multimedia Link Collector! **
The purpose of this community is to collect links to websites that are relevant and/or helpful to students of the McMaster Multimedia program as well as anyone else who is interested in multimedia. Membership is open to anyone but there are rules to be followed for anyone posting an entry or replying to an entry.
1. The entry must contain both a URL and a brief description of what is on the website being linked. It is a good idea to tell people why you feel the link is important and whether the link is useful for a certain group of people within multimedia (ie Flash users or PHP programmers, etc) 2. All entries must include relevant tags to assist in the organization of the Link Collector. 3. Any entries linking to a website with the intention to be disrespectful, hateful or encourage flaming/harrassment of the website will be deleted and the poster will be issued a warning.
1. All members are required to be respectful and polite. For now, anonymous posting is allowed so that people without Livejournal accounts may reply to entries (posting an entry requires a Livejournal account - they are free to sign up for) but if this is abused, anonymous posting will be turned off.
Any infractions of these rules will result in a warning from sunhawk. After a third warning, the user will be banned from this community.
